Who We Are
 
For us, it’s all about reaching as many people as possible for Jesus Christ; loving them, loving Him, and loving each other.

Our generation is about to see a great turning of Christians from not only proclaiming the Gospel, to demonstrating this great plan of God. The Richland Church of Christ is about joining God in His work of Love. You have come to our website hoping that you would find a community of believers that you might consider partnering with. You can find a friend, a spiritual family and a challenge worthy of your talents and gifts; even a place to heal. This is the perfect place for imperfect people.

“I know the plans I have for you….plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Our Beliefs

We believe in one God.  We believe in the one God revealed in the Bible. We believe the one God is made up of the three persons known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:1-2; Matthew 28:19).

We believe the Bible is God’s Word.  We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. We are confident God inspired the individuals who wrote each book of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.  We are committed to the continual study of God’s Word to see how we can most closely give God the personal and collective worship He desires (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

We believe we are the body of Christ.  We believe the church is comprised of Christ-followers.  Jesus is our head, and we are His body (Galatians 5:23).  

We believe salvation is offered only through Jesus.  We believe we are saved by grace which is accessed by our faith in God.  Our faith response includes confessing our sins, repenting, making a public confession of faith, and being baptized in the name of Jesus.  Through this response we are forgiven and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  Those who submit their lives to the lordship of Jesus “take up their cross” and follow Him (Ephesians 2:8; Acts 2:38).

We believe Christ will claim His own.  We look forward to the day when Jesus will return in the clouds and His followers will rise, meet Him in the sky, and ultimately be with Him forever (1 Thessalonians 4:17). 

We believe in biblical worship.  Our worship is particularly unique in two aspects: our singing is acapella and we participate in the Lord’s Supper weekly. We do so because our study of Scripture has led us to believe this is the way we can best honor our Lord.  In addition to singing and the Lord’s Supper, our worship services also include preaching, prayer, and giving (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2).
